Real Writing

This may seem controversial but I don’t like this advert. Everyone in the ad world seems to love it’s beautiful writing, but I find myself lacking a connection to it. It’s so generic that it lacks any real heart. I hear those words and it sounds like something pulled from text books and articles.

For all it’s talk about storytelling, and emotion, it doesn’t make me feel anything at all.

I’m not impressed by Dustin Hoffman either. He could be reading a shopping list.

This is much closer.

For me this is much more real.

This feels genuine. I find myself attached to the people in and their words. I can feel their sadness and fear. This is something with emotion.

But for me, a truly great story is in the details – the tragedies, the imperfections. These are what make us interesting and human, and what makes our stories worth listening to. That’s why I’m in love with this piece for Luta clothing. It speaks to me. It’s a living, breathing piece of writing and it makes me feel inspired. It isn’t the voice of a guy in an office, it’s true and honest.

It’s brilliant.
